Do you go out to, live or work in or near Adelaide’s late-night venues? Have your say and help inform the Late Night Code Review.

We're undertaking a review of the Late Night Trading Code of Practice (Late Night Code) under the Liquor Licensing Act 1997. The Late Night Code came into operation in 2013, with the intent of encouraging responsible service and consumption of liquor and to reduce the level of alcohol-related harm that occurs in and around licensed venues. The aim of the review is to:

  • assess whether the Late Night Code has successfully reduced alcohol-related harm in and around licensed venues
  • assess whether the Late Night Code has resulted in any unintended consequences; and
  • provide recommendations (if any) for amendments to the Late Night Code.

Have your say

To inform our review you now have an opportunity to put forward your views on the Late Night Code.

Two surveys have been developed as part of our public consultation, with each taking approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

  • Industry Survey: open to anyone who works at, manages, or owns a venue with a liquor licence. While being open to the whole industry, the survey also includes a section specifically for businesses that are required to comply with the Late Night Code.
  • Community and Patron Survey: open to the broader community including those who attend, live or work near licensed venues and for anyone who has a view about the current laws.

Alternatively you can also make a direct submission to: CBSReforms@sa.gov.au.

The Late Night Trading Code of Practice (Late Night Code) Review will remain open until 5pm, 20 January 2023.
